IT HAS been a busy year for Toowoomba-based manufacturer Pritab which is turning heads in the resources sector with its trailer-mounted mobile camps.

This week, the company completed its second Rio Tinto project delivering a 40 man trailer-mounted mobile camp.

However, the work will not end there for the 55 employees with another order placed by Santos for the custom-made camps.

Pritab managing director Darren Cardiff said he was proud of how much the business had grown in the past 18 months.

"It gives our team extreme satisfaction to see our product delivered to Rio Tinto," Mr Cardiff said.

"We certainly look forward to the opportunity to work with them and others as we continue to grow."

Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise CEO Shane Charles said the quality of work being produced in Toowoomba by Pritab was world-class.

"The camp is remarkable for many reasons but particularly its innovative use of local content," Mr Charles said.

"Everything from labour to raw materials and even locally-sourced parts and equipment have all come from the region wherever practicable."

Rio Tinto will put the mobile camp to use in its operations in the Pilbara region in Western Australia.

Each camp is self-supporting with power, potable water and waste water management as well as a fully-equipped kitchen and communal dining.

Each room also has free-to-air digital TV, internet access and an ensuite.
